Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $15

In both my work as a freelance writer and my personal life, I am always exhibiting my love of words. While writing has always felt quite natural to me, I do not take my skills for granted; rather, I take steps to solidify my abilities and ensure professional quality. I hold a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Mary Washington and I am a careful and thorough researcher. I take great pride in my work and never compromise the quality of my work.

Service Description

From writing short product descriptions to proofreading or authoring lengthy research papers, I am ready and capable to take on a diverse range of tasks. I can populate your blog with fascinating, original articles; proofread your academic papers; craft creative fiction and non-fiction; whip up impressive rewrites; fine tune your punctuation; and much more.

I am a native born United States English speaker. I have lived in the United States my entire life, although I also have a functional understanding of British English. I am currently working on completing the self tests that will demonstrate to you my skills in many diverse categories. Peruse the list yourself on my profile; if you noticed a desired skill that has not yet been rated, feel free to ask me about it. I will even prioritize taking that particular test so you can see my score.

In a field populated by companies of subcontractors, I am only a passionate individual. As such, I cannot always compete with the lowest bids or fastest timelines. But I never subcontract my work, and you will always find me available for questions, clarifications, and one-on-one contact. Because of my unique situation, I do not feel compelled to make proposals or accept work that is uninteresting or overwhelming to me; as such, you can rest assured that my attention to your needs is full and dedicated.
